The Wind-Free™ Cassette range has provided a much-needed industry solution

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 15 December , 2020Samsung has been revolutionising larger air conditioning installations in South Africa over the last few years, ensuring that intelligently designed, climate-controlled buildings are not concepts for the distant future. Catering to changing lifestyle needs of consumers, the next generation Wind-Free™ ACs are suitable for residential and commercial applications.


Rising to the challenges the commercial industry the Wind-Free™ Cassette range delivers exceptional performance and addresses key issues including the need for consistent cooling over a large area and energy efficiency. The range is renowned for its Wind-Free™ technology, which keeps an environment cool and comfortable, without the feel of a cold draft. The range’s impact is further enhanced with a wider and bigger blade to cool large areas much faster, without leaving any dead zones. These qualities combined with a focus on enhanced energy efficiency makes it indispensable to many customers.




“In the air conditioning segment, direct cold air dispersion and skyrocketing electricity bills are two of the problems that today’s customers are weary of the most. The world’s first Wind-Free™ Room Air Conditioner and Systems Air Conditioner addresses both of these issues together, providing unparalleled cooling comfort while providing optimum energy efficiency,” says Robert Larkan, Head of Digital Air Solutions at Samsung South Africa.




The lineup provides ambient condition by maintaining comfortable room temperature using Wind-Free™ cooling technology to gently disperse cold air through thousands of micro air holes. It comes to life in a two-step cooling system, which first lowers temperatures in ‘Fast Cooling Mode’ to ensure rooms get to the desired temperature faster. It then automatically switches to ‘Wind-Free™ Cooling Mode’, creating ‘still air’ once the desired temperature is achieved. This approach also reduces energy consumption compared to normal cooling modes. The unique product architecture of this range of air conditioners also contributes to its superior cooling performance. The upgraded structure’s wider inlet allows for more air to be drawn in at once, while the optimal width and angle of the outlet ensure that air is cooled and expelled faster, farther and wider to reach every corner of the room. There are clear reasons to choose this technology:


  • The ultimate in comfort

Wind-Free™ technology uses thousands of micro-holes on the unit’s front surface to gently spread air evenly throughout the room, creating an atmosphere that is consistently comfortable and cool, but never chilly.


  • Fast and wide cooling

Because of the optimised blade design, the air conditioner disperses air more powerfully, cooling rapidly. Its wider cooling range enhances airflow within the room and cools every corner, without leaving any dead zones.


  • Quieter Operation

The Wind-Free™ technology addresses an important issue for many. Despite its power and performance, the system provides a quieter operation to enhance comfort even further.


  • Automatic Energy Saving

The intelligent system provides additional energy efficiency through the newly-designed optional Motion Detect Sensor*. This innovation automatically switches to Wind-Free™ when it detects no movement in an area.“Our innovations in large scale air conditioning systems in South Africa are designed for the growing demand for buildings that maximise the versatility, performance and control of air conditioning systems. Customer-centric innovation lies at the core of our brand promise and these products pivots around this very approach. The new technology is especially designed to cater to South Africa’s needs and preferences, given the severe climatic conditions here,” concludes Larkan.
